Olli Jokinen. Had his second goal of the season Thursday. All four of his points have come in the last three games and that's a good sign for the Jets' No. 1 forward unit.


Jets' penalty-killing. The team started off well here, killing sharply and staying out of the box. In the last five games, however, it has given up a hurtful eight goals and had only one clean game in that time.
